There's a great command line tool called "wget". It's installed on
Ubuntu by default. See also "man wget" or "wget --help".

Basic usage:

To fetch a single file: 

wget http://some.server/filename

To fetch an entire website (but keep in mind that there are legal
issues ...):

wget -r http://some.server/some.directory
